Hi Bill,

Yeah tried it. Like you, my testing was limited but not so
successfull. I can read and write to the NVRAM using nvramtool (it
doesn't output any error message so I guess writing was successfull)
but it doesn't seem to have any effect when I reboot.

For example, if I dump the content of the nvram to a file, reboot,
change a couple of settings in the BIOS, rewrite the nvram with the
dumped file, I do not get my old parameters back. It doesn't seem to
have any effect.

These are my observations so far.

BTW, I use the ETXExpress-PC module.
